of tactics to raid assets. >> reporter: they can be as obvious as forging signatures on checks, begging for loans that never paid back or accusing power of attorney. >> when you give power of attorney to somebody it can give them unfettered access to your accounts. somebody who misuses those can do real damage. that's a problem for elderly. >> reporter: to help prevent elder abuse have bank and investment statements sent to a person you truce -- you trust to monitor accounts average for direct deposit and automatic bill pay, consult a reputable attorney for advice on wills and limiting power of attorney. fortunately, for arthur a legal services program for the elderly he consulted obtained a court order voiding the granddaughter's deed, returning the property to him. consumer reports says, if you are or elderly relative is concerned about financial abuse a good place if get help is national center on elderly abuse. i posted a link at abc7news.com. i'm michael finney, on your side. >>> -- >> par [ unintelligible ] >>> good morning. 6:18. big weather story will be tomorrow morning when mo
. then two weeks later, three weeks later, kennedy himself is assassinated. and as you said before, this begs the question that historians argue about. we will probably keep arguing about that the next 50 years. what kennedy has mounted to -- what he have pulled out of the american troops in vietnam and the advisers if we didn't yet have the troops and the great numbers of the combat troops there? and you are doing think that indications are that he would have come in and you cite various sources about that. curious just to challenge that a little bit. there is a wonderful book by a story called choosing war which you probably know. in which he says that the viet cong attacks were doubling in november from the month before and south vietnam and that there were meetings of kennedy's tauter advisers which i think finished up the day before kennedy was assassinated. this would be a good film. and incidentally the viet cong we are going to win if they didn't do something very quickly. so, not to challenge the members of people who were devolve in the sand kennedy would have pulled out, but wouldn
, we can go hunt together. >> reporter: in that case, as in this one, is begs the question, was she just being polite or was the caller convincing? could you tell the difference? the queen rarely uses the first person singular. one tend not to, does one not? >> i think it's difficult sleeping in a strange bed as well. >> yes, of course. >> it's nothing like the palace, is it, charles? nope, nothing like the palace at all. david wright, abc new, los angeles. >> i can't believe how that happened. >> i am a little shocked too. they were, i don't know. it sounded more like the queen than when i saw the piece yesterday. see how they may have fallen for it. >> may have fallen for it. nobody asked for the woman to identify herself. i know she said kate's grandmother. but still -- >> that's funny. those deejays are good at that kind of stuff. your impression is good too. you should call the hospital next see what is going on. >> uh. >> i don't think so. >> oh, willis, that is harsh. >> that's all for "world news now." >> cheerio. every time someone chooses finish over cascade, it sparks a m
to beg with this guy. >> shepard: their words had no effect. the general manager and the general manager said belcher thanked them for giving a chance in the nfl. as police were just arriving. witnesses say belcher ducked behind the vehicle in that parking lot and shot himself. >> shots fired. one hit. >> there are no reports of any suicide note. no explanation at all of why javon belcher did this. but, tonight, obvious questions about his mental health. whether he may have taken too many hard hits. that's just speculation. one of belcher's friends tells a sports blog called dead spin after game last month belcher was dazed and couldn't remember what had happened the day before or at least before the game. steve brown is on fox top story. is he live in our midwest bureau tonight. what sort of signs of trouble before this shooting? anything? >> about the allegations that belcher had had head trauma or concussions, both the team and the league said there is no concussion history that they have on this man. and that he was never held out of a game because of a concussion. about the relation
. that does beg the question, grover, why bother, given that both sides know where they need to move, why the games? >> well, it's not clear that both sides know. the week after the election, president obama was asked do you have to have the higher rates or could we have deductions and credits and he said he was open to negotiations. three weeks later, after thanksgiving, he shows up and all of a sudden there's a line in the sand on rates that had come out of nowhere, so the president seems to be moving the goal posts in a deliberate effort, i don't know, to extract something, to push people over the fiscal cliff. something's going on and it's not clear because he's not where he used to be. he's quadrupled the amount of taxes he demands. he now has to have rates instead of just numbers. it's going to be interesting what he is doing but it appears he's not trying to come to any agreement. his position is one that the senate, the democratic senate, has rejected in the past. >> robert reish, 60% of americans according theo a new c news/"the washington post" poll believes they should raise ta
no, i'm not. he took to begging. he asked, cajoled, he asked for 50 destroyers. f.d.r. dragged his feet. first he said no. then he said maybe. then by november of 1940 the first five or six of the 50 dribbled in. they were rust buckets and virtually obsolete. which roosevelt told t"new york times" and congress. he said we gave them junk and we get six or seven caribbean naval bases from the empire. at one point that summer i believe churchill wrote a letter and asked roosevelt to declare war. that is how desperate he was. and so after a few brandies in t the co vilville diaries churchi says they want to us bleed to death and pick up everything that is left for free. at one point they were thinking around the dipper table of having everyone in england melt their wedding rings because it might raise $8 million or $10 million of gold and use that to buy american goods because it was all cash and carry, to shame the americans. they didn't do that. host: how much did winston churchill expect japan to get into the war? guest: one of the things, in doing this, i had to lock at what is he
many times did he ask fdr to get into the war? clacks out one -- >> at one point, he took to begging. he asked for destroyers. fdr said no. then he said maybe. then the first five or six dribbled in. they were rustbuckets. he told congress -- more last -- look at the deal i just made. we gave them drunk. at one point that summer, churchill i asked roosevelt to declare war. he was desperate. and so after a few brandies, and you will see churchill's saying "those americans are not good americans. they want us to bleed to death and come in and pick up everything for free." at one. he talked about having everyone in england mill there wedding rings to raise $10 million worth of gold to buy american goods. to shame the americans. they did not do that. >> how much did winston churchill expect japan to get into the war? >> one of the things in doing this, i had to look at what is he interested in? what is in his head? he was interested in norway, sumatra, not japan, not the pacific. his knowledge of geography, the politics, the military situation was not there. he admits in his memoirs in o
discussing the war on coal. that's a lot. why the false identity is the question that continues to be begged and hopefully we can answer. >> there wasn't a regulation that she didn't like and she didn't want to impose. >> can the coal companies breathe easier now? can we see new power generation happening in this country or are we going get someone just like her because they'll want to work for president obama? >> right. here's the thing. she was hailed by rolling stone as the most progressive ep achieve ever, but at the end of the day she was effectuating a radical agenda set by the president. this war on coal was set forth when he gave his shellacking press conference and said there were other ways to skin that cat. so you're going to get somebody who wants the job to effectuate his agenda and it won't be anybody much better, i suppose, but the good news may lie on what we find. there are 12,000 e-mails that by their very nature assuming the false identity that she didn't want the public to see and these on coal.00 e-mails addressing maybe there was news in there that was candid and becaus

begs a question. the u.s. has actually spoken of the move of chemical weaponry before, but this, officials are saying, is different. tell us why. >> well, it's different because the intelligence information that is coming out, the data, shows moving apparently these weapons or supplies, and they have done that before, but the way they are doing them, it's different, and it's kind of a new activity, i guess you could call it, which might indicate some type of move toward deploying the weapons. it's a little murky, of course, right there. you heard secretary clinton not wanting to get into intelligence issues, as you can imagine, but there is a heightened concern, and that is one of the reasons that when she was asked about it during this brief -- during this presser in prague, she was very, very serious in her response. >> yeah. no. i heard earlier that they tend to keep the chemical -- the chemicals separate from the delivery systems, the rockets, the mortars, and it looks like they are bringing the two together, which is worrying, but the syrian government playing it all down.
